Lose the Ego.
A brilliant mind does not necessarily equate to great success. If you wish to grow and succeed, you must be willing to miserably lose the dignity of your ego. The only real test of your theory is action and results. Do not continue to fool your self into believing that you must continue to ponder, analyze and research. If you want to live large, you have to invest largely. Be willing to put all that you are on the line. It may be frightening, but (no matter what the outcome) the rewards are infinite.
What is the action that you are NOT taking? Something flashed into your mind just then. Take that objective and translate it into effective action. What are three steps you will take to bring this goal to fruition? Take the first step today (yes, today!). If you are not willing to risk it today, what makes you think tomorrow will be any different?
Success or sabotage? We all have what it takes to succeed if we will simply act.
Is this going to be an incredible day? Think of how fulfilled you will feel at the end of this day if you have stretched beyond your usual comforts.
